Professor Francis Maes, a specialist in Russian music, and the dramaturge Piet De Volder focus on Shostakovich’s fascinating combination of satire and classical tragedy and on the context of early Soviet culture.
There is a lot to be said, learnt and discovered about each of the operas. Which is why the dramaturgy department is organising a number of day courses in close cooperation with Amarant vzw that explore specific operas in greater depth. Various experts in the fields of opera, musicology, history and literature are invited to share with you their views on the opera.
Please note: these courses are only in Dutch.
Tickets from € 21.00 to € 24.50
